NOTE:  I'm running Hero Designer 6, Build 20170504

 

So when I attempt to load certain prefabs from either the Champions Powers (CP HD) files or the Equipment Guide (HSEG HD) files, I run into an issue where I cannot see the actual .hdc files in a given sub directory. 

This has occurred in the following sub directories for the Powers files:

 - Size Alteration

 - Sleep and Dream

 - Solar and Celestial

 - Spirit Projection

 - Stretching

 - Telekinetic

 - Time

 - Vibration

 - Water

 - Weather

 

This has occurred in the following sub directories for the Equipment Guide files:

 - Powered Armor

 

This issue did not seem to occur with the last build and I deleted the directories and reinstalled the files from the Client Area of this page with the same results.

The only "filter" that HD uses in determining what files to display is the file extension. Prefabs will be looking for .hdp. Characters will look for .hdc. And so on.

So renaming the files should resolve the issue then?

If the file is named something like [filename].hdp.txt, then yes -- remove the .txt and it will show up and act like a prefab.

If the file is named [filename].hdc, then no -- it's a character file and should be used as such.

So then I'm confused...

 

Why would a list of powers (e.g.; Size Alteration) from the Champions Powers book be listed as .hdc files instead of the correct .hdp???

 

Note:  I realize this is probably not your issue...I'm just venting.

They were entered into HD by different people. (I was another one.)
